By "this same problem" do you mean the specific error message in this bug
report, namely:

> | install -m 0644 /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/nvidia.ko /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/debian/nvidia-kernel-2.6.29-2-amd64/lib/modules/2.6.29-2-amd64/nvidia/nvidia.ko ; \

The instructions in the bug report are to run:

    m-a clean nvidia

before attempting a build.  You need to always do this in module-assistant
whenever there's a new version of the source package.  This is more a
module-assistant problem than a problem with any specific source package.
It affects all kernel module source packages occasionally.

Your log file wasn't attached, so I can't double-check what error that
you're getting.
